Congratulations to TUCS (Trabajadores Unidos de Corsicana en Shelbyville) who just won $37,000 from an Unfair Labor Practice case against Corsicana Bedding, Inc.

Corsicana agreed to pay the seven workers who originally formed TUCS $37,000.02 - roughly $5k per worker. The settlement comes just weeks before an upcoming trial for Unfair Labor Practices before the National Labor Relations Board, which charged that the employer retaliated against workers and violated their rights to organize through threats, harassment, and implied surveillance. 

In addition, the bosses must post a notice in its factory for all the workers to see. The workers were delighted with the result and hope it will serve to continue the momentum of their work for a workplace for a safe and equitable workplace.

(We will update this story in more depth but wanted to make sure good news spreads quickly).
